I love Kitty. I want to be Kitty…er, without Kitty’s problems anyway. If you don’t know who Kitty is, then you haven’t been reading Carrie Vaughn’s series starring werewolf Kitty Norville; and shame on you! This series is hilarious, scary, exciting, and sexy all at the same time. In the four previous books, Kitty’s been turned, exiled, outed, hunted, and mated. Now her life continues in book five, “Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand” where she ‘tries’ to get married.
When all the brouhaha and decision involved in a big wedding get to be a bit too much, Kitty and Ben decide to get married in Vegas. Once her boss finds out, hey…how cool would it be to do a live show in Vegas? Yeah, that’s about how Kitty’s life goes. So instead of frou frou drinks by the pool, Kitty’s looking at work, delivering a message to the Vegas Master Vampire, and (yes, only Kitty’s life could be so screwed up) dodging the gun-show expo supernatural-haters who also happen to be booked in the same hotel! And I shouldn’t forget to mention the magician who seems to be more than a showman and the animal act at one Vegas hotel that may actually star shapeshifters! But if you want to know more, you’ll have to pick up your own copy…mine’s already sitting on my keeper shelf.
This series isn’t really romance, and it isn’t really urban fantasy, and it isn’t really suspense, and it isn’t really mystery. It’s a bit of all of them rolled up in snarky dialogue and sharp plotting. I just wish Carrie Vaughn could write faster 🙂
